Good ground engineering models are essential. If you know how soil and rock materials and their defects are formed you can anticipate where they might occur (the site geology), their engineering properties and construction issues that might arise. The aim of this course is to give students enough basic knowledge and skills for them to have the confidence to apply geological principles and methods in their work and to continue to learn about geology so that they can make better engineering judgments and decisions.
